For the last two years, we have partnered with World Gospel Mission (WGM), a non-profit organization who ministers to many migrant families in south McAllen and provides affordable Christian education, sports ministry and leagues, and much more. One of the annual events that we come together on is a back to school drive for the students at Taylor Christian School.
This event has two parts: school supply donations and volunteer opportunities. Each year that we've done this, it's been a great opportunity to not only serve our community, but pray for students and their families as they prepare for upcoming school year. We hope you can join us this August!
SCHOOL SUPPLY LIST
• Gluesticks or bottles;
• Folders with brads;
• Composition notebooks;
• Loose leaf paper packets;
• Pencils (No.2);
• Scissors (blunt and sharp);
• Washable markers;
• Wide ruled notebooks;
Donations may be dropped off at the Incubator (display at the Connections desk) on Sunday Mornings and the last day for donations is Sunday, July 22nd!
**While all of the above school supplies are needed, backpacks are one of the most valuable and greater supplies we can give students
The day to volunteer is Saturday, August 4th and we'll be doing everything from setting up to sorting through school supplies for students; the drive will be hosted at Taylor Community Center.
